TRE'ADGOLD CONCESSION.

?

Rt. H@

With the indulgence of the House, as I have to be away in a minute or two, I would like to call the attention of the House to a matter in regard to which my hon. friend the leader of the opposition (Mr. R. L. Borden) asked for information yesterday, that is in regard to the report of the Tread-gold commission. The House was advised some time ago that the concessionaries had withdrawn and asked to be relieved of their contract and that the application had been granted by the government. Thereupon my colleague, the Secretary of State, advised Mr. Justice Britton of the fact and intimated there was no necessity of a report. Mr. Scott acting without consulting Council, and when the matter was brought to the attention of Council his action was not approved of. Mr. Justice Britton was advised immediately to consider the letter of Mr. Scott as unwritten and withdrawn, and therefore we expect a report from Mr. Justice Britton on the matter.

Mr. Speaker, before the Orders of the day are called, I would like to know when we may expect to have brought down the papers relating to the resignation of Lt.-Col. Gregory ?
